Anyone order them yet? I ordered mine today after I took some really cute photos of Avery. If you sign up for Similac StrongMoms they give you $20 off birth announcements at Shutterfly.com. I signed up solely for the discount. They have them priced in such a way that you still have to pay about $10 for them but I paid $10 for 50 REALLY cute cards so I'm happy. I ended up getting double the amount of cards I wanted (50) for the same price as I'd normally pay for 25. These are the photos that I used in the announcements, I used our new camera and placed Avery naked on a fluffy blanket to try and get a cute pic of her but she pee'd all over it. Haha
Those pics will look cute on the announcement. I especially love the one with Avery in the hat. I got a $20 coupon for Tinypics the other day so I need to make my announcements before it expires on May 3rd. My dh took some pictures yesterday so I will have to look through them and pick one.
I bet they will be so cute!!! I made Emily's a couple of months ago that way all I had to do was take a photo of her and put it on the announcement. I really need to do a little photoshoot soon though to get the photo I want to use
I also got one of those coupon code things for shutterfly from some place and plan to use it! Which template did you go with?
Thanks for your sweet comments ladies!
Bonnie-- it wont let me link to the exact one I used but its on the front page, a few rows down and its called "Hello Chalkboard Girl". Black background with "hello" written in pink bubble letters, the pink in her hat/bow ended up looking really nice. The actual price was $19 for 25 cards but you have to spend exactly $20 or over for the discount to apply, and the next denomination up is 50. The price actually went down when I ordered 50 + added the rebate.
Here's the announcement I did at Tiny Prints. I'm not crazy about the pic because I think it looks too much up her nose and I couldn't zoom out but my coupon was expiring tomorrow so I needed to order it.
